Rats 'eat' part of Suffolk woman's car (UK) [View all]

From BBC News:

"A Suffolk woman returned from a holiday to find rats had eaten through parts of her car causing damage put at 1,200.

Jill Delaney, 74, from Kentford, said the electrics had gone, rubber was stripped from pedals and the car had to be towed to a garage to be fixed."

...

"Then I saw the rubber on the pedals had been completely shredded and there were rat droppings everywhere. I know a rat dropping when I see one."


"Pest controllers told me rats hate creosote, so I've filled a cat litter tray with the stuff and put it under the car. I've also put out burnt toast because I hear they hate that too," she added.

Who knew that rats eat car parts, but hate burnt toast?
